Decisions is a no-code, rules-driven business process automation platform. Automate your business processes, no matter how complex with broad, deep and flexible functionality.
The Flow Designer allows users to easily build a flow in a no-code, drag and drop environment. Flows can be built with unlimited size and complexity and can be started by user interaction (forms), on a schedule, or based on an API call or event.
The Form Designer is a graphical drag and drop, no-code environment that creates both responsive and dynamic forms using a variety of different layouts. Forms can be customized by using form backgrounds or by taking advantage of CSS styling and can be dynamic by integrating controls with validation and visibility rules.
The Decisions report designer allows Business analysts to collect, filter, and display data within a report, in order to establish trends and business metrics. Reports not only display data visually as charts, matrices, calendars, or tiles, but they are also fully actionable which makes them a functional feature to help users get work done.
Decisions offers powerful, comprehensive yet easy-to-use rules capabilities including eight graphical rules editors. Rules can be used as part of a workflow or can sit alone and be called from outside Decisions.
Decisions data structures give you the tools to optimize your data so that your organization can use data where and when it’s needed. Our easy to configure data structures allow users to quickly and simply define variables and various data types with no code or define data structures already being using in other systems.
Tasks and Assignments happen in organizations all day, every day and Decisions allow work to continue flowing through the organization while holding audit and accountability to efficiently connect people and technology together.
Statement rules are simple to build, understand, and change by both technical and business users due to the use of natural language structures when building the if, then conditions. These rules can be used in a number of different ways that range in complexity, and can result in a logical true or false decision, can trigger an action, or can return data.
A truth table is a style of rule in Decisions that is built as a table structure and compares the possible combinations of multiple conditions which then drive multiple outcomes. Building a truth table combines several rules into a single place to be evaluated and can return single data, multiple data, or trigger a flow.
Expression rules allow those that are familiar with ‘excel style’ formulas to define a rule using mathematical symbols and functions. An expression rule can either be used directly as a rule itself, as a flow step, or in other rule types such as statement rules, truth tables, or sequential rules.
Sequential rules are a combination of statement rules, truth tables, and expression rules that are sequenced in a workflow. These logic driven rules feed data from one rule to another to produce an output and return a complex decision.
Rule Sets are used to group rules that are of similar nature and allow them to work together and be treated as a single rule in execution. Since multiple rules work together in a rule set, this allows individual rules to be created that are easier to understand and easier to maintain.
Roles and permissions can be managed either by the Decisions Platform or can come from external user rights management systems like Active Directory or LDAP. These permissions determine which accounts or groups can access certain information and perform certain tasks.
Diagram tiles are a way to capture data and present it in an attractive manner using info-graphics. Charts, shapes, steps, labels, and more are available to add to diagram tiles to display data in a relevant manner. Diagram tiles are available in any 5.0 or newer version of Decisions and can be built by simply dragging and dropping items on a tile and defining a flow to fetch the information you want to display.
Decisions is a browser-based application with an End User Portal and a Designer Studio. This video will navigate through these environments and provide a quick tour of the basic things you will see when first logging in.
Decisions offers a wide variety of built in features, as well as some extra add-on features that can be installed on demand through modules. Check out this short video to see how to install a module to your Decisions Portal.
Rule Chains are a set of rules combined together in sequence where each rule produces a fact that is an output of the rule chain and can be consumed in rules further down the chain. Rule chains are available on any 5.0 version of Decisions or higher and can be ran by both forward chaining or backward chaining.
Some flows should capture or transform data on a regular basis. For example, your application may require that flows run on an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. The Decisions platform allows you to schedule processes for almost any interval and frequency.
The Decisions case editor provides an ideal platform for the configuration and optimization of a case by focusing on the data rather than the workflow process. These case-based processes are managed through collaboration and incorporated rules to determine which team members can perform different actions.
